ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The future looks bright for a newly released inmate from the Atlanta City Detention Center.

Shaun Harris was released Monday and is the first to graduate from the Mayor's new PAT 3 Program. The program allows non-violent inmates to get job while they are behind bars which allows them to start when they get out.

Harris says the program was an answer to his prayers. 

After spending over four years behind bars, Harris will now begin a job with the Department of Watershed Management.
